    Not sure if there has been much documentation on this but I thought I'd share it.

    I have a P68 which has a reasonably good sized ash bin. Emptied it for the first time today.

    I've burned 35 bags so far - the bin was full to brim. Totalled 6 lbs (after subtracting the weight of the empty bin)

    Thought I'd keep track for each brand of pellets I use. Not sure if 6 lbs is a lot since this is my firt time.

    Currently I am using a Canadian brand "Granules" (So much for buying USA)
    I have no reason to complain but I have nothing to compare it to.

    I did about the same thing when I hit the 1 ton mark, 13 lb. ash. You are well under the 1% ash required by Pellet Institute for Premium pellets. Good Job, and hope your luck continues
